HEAD COACH James Lowes is full of optimism as the club's recruitment drive continues to gather pace.

Bradford Bulls will line-up in the Kingstone Press Championship next year and Lowes' 2015 roster is already beginning to take shape.

On Wednesday, powerhouse three-quarter Etu Uaisele became the Bulls' eighth recruit for next season – and the fourth new addition, with Dan Fleming, Jake Mullaney and Dave Petersen already on board.

The quartet join Tom Olbison, Adam Sidlow, Dale Ferguson and Lee Gaskell in the Bradford ranks.

And boss Lowes believes the club's recent transfer activity bodes well, insisting he and managing director Steve Ferres are building a team capable of making an instant return to the sport's top flight.

“We are doing well on the recruitment front, we keep chipping away and it is looking good at the moment,” said Lowes, who is being proudly sponsored by UK Swim Stars.

“We still have four games left to concentrate on this season but we are excited at the prospect of pre-season, where the new guys will be able to really knuckle down.

“We have had plans for a while and are now going about executing them in the best way possible. We are gathering pace.

“We can only be pleased with the business done so far, but there will be plenty more to come as negotiations draw to a close.

“The signings and re-signings we have made are a testament to the club, in my opinion.

“Hopefully, our supporters recognise the good work going on behind the scenes.”

We'll be announcing the latest addition to Lowes' 2015 squad TOMORROW – at 7.00am – so stay tuned to the Bulls' official channels.

Meanwhile, First:Utility Super League action returns to the Provident Stadium next weekend, when former Bradford ace Lee Radford's Hull FC come to town.
